WORD FOR THIS POST:
Soccer (n): a form of football played between two teams of 11 players, in which the ball may be advanced by kicking or by bouncing it off any part of the body but the arms and hands, except in the case of the goalkeepers, who may use their hands to catch, carry, throw, or stop the ball.
My home is filled with craze between hockey finals and Euro 2012. The TV screen keeps flashing between a green soccer field and white iced hockey rink.
I am proud the country I was born is one of the hosts of Euro 2012. I haven't visited since 2000, so it's been a while and it's definitely a different country since then, but I still remember it as home. So much has changed in the past 10-20 years, it's difficult to even begin to describe it. I hope to be able to take my kids in 2013 to see Poland.
Today, I'd like to share with you some photos of Poland. Hope you enjoy:)
Warsaw: Poland's Capital
Gdansk: Located in Northern Poland on the Baltic Sea
Krakow: Located in South Central Poland, this city boasts historic castles and wonderful legends. Also home to a great University where many US doctor's get their education.
Bielawa: This is the small town I was born in. In this picture I can see my home (far in the back), church and first elementary school. (I went to two different ones).
Are you watching soccer? Cheering for any particular team? Have you visited Poland?
